The new Batwoman is ready to get dressed.
In a 10-second teaser released Thursday by The CW, Javicia Leslie’s Ryan Wilder rushes into his old Batwoman costume in a decrepit bathroom.
As Ryan zips up his boots and lifts the iconic hood, which appears to be Kate Kane’s old costume, she says four words that would make anyone’s heart pound with excitement: “Time to be powerful.”
Check out the teaser for Season 2 below!
Leslie takes on the role of Gotham’s Scarlet Knight from former star Ruby Rose, who left the series after a season. Although she is seen wearing Kate’s outfit, she will be getting her own redesigned style, complete with a new curly-haired red ombre hairstyle, to be featured in the third episode of the new season.
In September, Leslie shared a sneak peek of Batwoman’s new hood, but with Rose’s red wig. “Look out Gotham, I’m dressed and ready to go …”, she captioned the photo of BTS.
That came weeks after Leslie shared during a virtual DC FanDome panel that she had yet to try on the Batwoman costume, but that she will “very soon.”
“[Showrunner] Caroline [Dries] and I was also talking about how important it is that if we are going to have a Black Batwoman, she needs to become a ‘sistah’ when she becomes Batwoman. It’s important to her to feel the silhouette, that it still looks like that, plus naturally textured hair and things like that, “Leslie said at the time.” We are still putting things together. I can not wait. I really have no idea [what it’s going to look like]. I keep sending him fan art, like, ‘Oh my gosh, check this out, this is really cool!’ “.
Batwoman returns Sunday, January 17, 2021 on The CW.
